If you're in the market for smart-home devices, tablets, TVs and more, don't forget to check out Amazon's collection of self-branded tech. Everyone knows about the Kindle and Fire Stick, but they have everything from Wi-Fi range extenders to batteries and even cameras, all at great prices and with Amazon's consistent quality assurance. Best of all, since they're Amazon's own products, the mega-retailer can offer some incredible deals you won't find anywhere else.

So what’s on sale? Here's a taste: Amazon’s Eero 6 dual-band mesh Wi-Fi 6 system is just $195, or $84 off — that's a 30 percent savings!

Save 30 percent: Eero 6 dual-band mesh Wi-Fi 6 system

A year at home has taught us many things about ourselves, our lives and our living spaces. One of the most crucial things that many of us discovered is the limits of our at-home Wi-Fi. Where once we were content, now we know every dead spot in our home, grumble through every buffering video and lash out when a device is plagued with dreaded lag. But what can you do?

Well, Amazon is here to help, with their Eero 6 dual-band Wi-Fi system. With this compact system of puck-like doodads, you can cover your entire multi-floor home with high-speed internet. This set includes a router and two Wi-Fi range extenders, allowing you to target those particular trouble areas in your home and get up to 5,000 sq. ft. of 500 Mbps internet!

"My main router has to be on one end of the house on the top floor." one five-star reviewer shared, "Before the Eero, this always meant I had to live with some dead zones within my living area, mainly at the opposite end of my house and on the deck behind our house. The Eero’s wireless mesh network is able to deliver Wi-Fi to a much larger area of my house than a single router could, and did not require me to drill holes in my wall to hard-wire something."

As we all start heading back to the office and going out more, it's only reasonable to want to make sure everything back home is safe and secure. That's doubly true if you've got pets who've been on their best behavior while you've been round, but you know they're just waiting to take down that brand new vase.

For a long time, home security systems were a costly hassle, but now, Amazon offers an unobtrusive option for an unbeatable price. The Blink Mini is an HD camera with motion detection and two-way audio, capable of streaming directly to your smartphone. Monitor the scene and even compliment your pets while you're away. You can also hang on to crucial moments captured on camera, thanks to the Blink Subscription Plan — a 30-day free trial is part of this deal.

"This is absolutely perfect for a family that wants an extra layer of security." one secure-feeling shopper stated, "I bought one as an add on with my Echo and after seeing how it worked - I immediately ordered two more. Picture quality, night vision is perfect. The motion detector surpassed my expectation....The sensitivity is good — overall I absolutely recommend to anyone. The app is simple and has all that you need. I work with camera systems and this is incredibly simple to install and use with your phone or the Echo products. Overall, I love it."

One thing the last year absolutely solidified is that we are truly and fully in the age of streaming. Netflix movies are winning Oscars, Amazon has racked up plenty of Emmys, and we all endured a year of hardship thanks to the Library of Alexandria of digital media right at our fingertips, joining in virtual communal experiences built around Tiger King, The Queen's Gambit and, these days, a plucky AFC Richmond coach on Ted Lasso.

Have you been feeling left out in the cold because your current picture quality just not up to snuff? There's never been a better time to upgrade! The beloved Amazon Fire Stick 4K can give you access to all of the best films, television and live events (subscriptions may apply) all in the crispest high-quality picture and sound quality. 

"I received the Fire TV Stick 4K on launch day. I own the previous model and this is a much better experience." said one long-time Fire Stick owner, "First off, the remote is a huge improvement. The power button on the remote can turn on my TV, receiver and Fire Stick, and I can switch the inputs automatically so the Fire Stick is on screen and ready to go with just one click of the power button. It's really nice." They added, "It's faster than previous Fire Sticks. No more menu lag. Things are smoother and faster overall."
